Fine Art Lessons

Recommended for ages 10 and up, though younger students may be considered if they are able to focus quietly.

Fine Art Lessons are work at your own pace classes, designed to build technical skill while focusing on subject matter that inspires each student. Students are encouraged to bring printed reference photos to class as inspiration, while working on each piece.  If students are unable to do this, the studio has an extensive binder of reference options.  Classes meet once a week, with 4 week commitment.  In order to best place students, a  review of portfolio/example pieces and interview may be required to enroll in any of the fine art classes.    These classes require a strong ability to focus and work independently.  $30/lesson.  Class size: up to 6 students depending on the needs of the group. 
Steps to enroll: 
1. Fill out a registration form.
2. The studio will reach out to confirm classes
3. Complete payment using the link below or we will provide you with one via text.
(Due to demand for classes, the studio will hold spots for only 48 hours after the payment link has been issued)
